Thanks Alina may have sent this twice its 2 ft and 6 years old think its a palmatum bloodgood never had a problem until I re-potted it It was in a wooden container and some of the roots had got into the damaged wood think thats what caused it.

love my little tree

I re- potted my japanese maple in April and think I damaged the tap root . All the new growth shrivelled and later some of the smaller branches looked dead . I was advised to prune these off so I have and now it looks really sorry for itself . It's not in wind sun etc. and I used the correct potting mix and given it a weak feed. I'm gutted It's my favourite little tree. Cost me 50p in a sale when it was a twig and it' about 2 ft had it 6 years . Think it's a acer palmatum bloodgood. Any advice ?

Thanks, Jean.

help I repotted my acer palmatum in April and all the leaves withered . Then some of the smaller branches died . The tree is still alive so I ve cut the dead ones off as recommended from a gardening site . What do you think the chances are on it's survival ? Think I damaged the tap root when I transplanted it. Not in wind , sun etc. and used ericacious compost and gave it weak feed . HELP !!
